CHRISTIANSTED — The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) Preserving Paradise team advises the community of the beginning of a week-long manhole rehabilitation project scheduled to begin on Monday, May 28, 2018 along the Catherine’s Rest Road.

Traffic within the project limits will be reduced to one lane for approximately 500 feet during the working hours of 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. The Authority advises the motoring public to drive with caution or consider the use of alternate routes near the impacted area.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
